Press Release

QMU graduate film screening is set for Edinburgh’s Filmhouse  

Queen Margaret University’s film, media, and public relations students will be screening a selection of twelve short fiction, music video and documentary films at the Edinburgh Filmhouse. The event, which primarily showcases films made by students in their final year of their degree at QMU, will take place on Wednesday 6 July.

The work covers a wide selection of narrative subjects, genres and styles, including one man’s desperate search for his past, a woman’s God like intervention into teenage promiscuity, and the transformative power of a pot plant.

Dr Richard Butt, Head of Media, Communication and Performing Arts at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, said: “This year, students have shown admirable creativity and maturity in their filmmaking and this is evident in the quality of their films. Students have shot in locations from Portobello to London, with one drama shot entirely in Poland. Some of the students have also taken advantage of the cinematic qualities offered by the new generation of digital SLR and Letus cameras, so the production values of the final films are very high for graduate work on limited budgets.”

The screening will be for one night only, taking place on Wednesday 6 th July at 8.30pm. Tickets prices £7.50 (full price) £5.50 (concessions).
